  • How do I fix a broken curtain rod?

    I recently broke the hard plastic curtain rod (the one that adjusts the tilt of the curtain, not the string that adjusts the height of the base of the curtain cover) on my bedroom window.

    Can I just go to Home Depot or Lowe's to get a new curtain rod or do I have to purchase an entire new curtain? If the rod can be replaced with purchasing an entire new curtain setup, how do I install the new rod?

  • Three bodies of identical mass?

    The problem reads as follows:

    Three bodies of identical mass (M) form the vertices of an equilateral triangle of side (L) and rotate in circular orbits about the center of the triangle. They are held in place by their mutual gravitation.

    What is the speed of each?

    (Express your answer in terms of the variables M,L, and appropriate constants)

    I continue to arrive at the answer: velocity = sqrt( (3GM)/(sqrt(3)*L) )

    and the online assignment keeps telling me i'm wrong.

    What am I doing wrong?

  • Will I really be forced to move out of my rental and is this fair?

    I live in Washington State and my two roommates are looking to get different jobs in another state. Our lease for our current rental expires at the beginning of August of this year. They are planning to travel to another state to do some job interviews and have said, that if they are accepted, they will; move, terminate the current lease agreement, and pay any of the fines for terminating the lease.

    Here is the section of the lease agreement all three of us signed:

    "6. BREAKING YOUR LEASE - In order to replace you as the Tenant/ Lessee for the property, you may.........Advertise, show and secure qualified applicant(s) and have them provide us with fully completed application forms with appropriate fee(s). We will then try to qualify the applicant(s) and prepare the paperwork/new lease should they be approved. There is a $100 fee for this lease documentation and you remain fully responsible for the rent and utilities up to the time the new tenant lease takes effect and your security deposit will be refunded - less standard move-out charges and other justified deductions, if any - when the new tenants have executed and returned their property condition check list.

    OR,

    you may…vacate the property and we will then advertise and show the property to qualified applicants. The fee for this service is one half of one month’s rent (a minimum of $300). We will qualify the applicants and prepare the paperwork/new lease. IN ALL CASES YOU REMAIN FULLY RESPONSIBLE FOR THE RENT, UTILITIES, AND ADVERTISING COSTS up to the time the new tenants’ pay full security deposit and rent, and the lease takes effect. Your security deposit will be refunded, less move-out charges and advertising costs when the new tenants have executed and returned their property condition check list.

    Will I be forced to find another place to live; and if so, does this seem fair to do this to me?

  • Physics projectile motion with no velocities given?

    A basketball player is fouled and is awarded a free throw. The center of the basket is a

    horizontal distance of 4.21 m from the throw line and is a height of 3.05 m above the

    floor. The ball is thrown 1.83 m above the floor at an angle of 35 degrees above the horizontal.

    The ball goes through the center of the basket.

    What is the velocity of the ball the instant after the player lets go of it?

    I guess i'm just a bit confused how to determine any of the velocities.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Integral of (ln t)^2 with respect to t?

    I am confused if: I can just substitute u=(ln t) and come out with a final answer of (1/3)(ln t)^3 + C

    Or

    Do I have to use integration by parts?

    The back of the book lists the following as the answer:

    t(ln t)^2 - 2t(ln t) + 2t + C

  • Single Var. Calculus question about oil drilling?

    The question reads as follows:

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In drilling an oil well, the total cost, C, consists of fixed costs (independent of the depth of the well) and marginal costs, which depend on depth; drilling becomes more expensive, per meter, deeper into the earth. Suppose the fixed costs are 1,000,000 riyals (the riyal is the unit of currency of Saudi Arabia), and the marginal costs are

    C'(x) = 4000 + 10x riyals/meter,

    where x is the depth in meters. Find the total cost of drilling a well x meters deep.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Now this question is in the chapter/section that explains how to construct "anti-derivatives" analytically.

    My initial thought was to simply add the "anti-derivative" (4000x + 5x^2) to the fixed cost (1,000,000 riyals) and have that equal the total cost, but something doesn't seem correct about that.

    Can someone please explain what the correct answer would be in this case and how you came upon the answer you did?

    Thanks in advance!

  • What should I be doing?

    I have been trying for a couple of years to fall in love but I haven't found a girl that I am compatible with (or when I do find a compatible match, she is already in a relationship). I am a college student who knows how to work on everything from cars and cabinets to computers. I am 6ft tall and 158 lbs; so I am not overweight by any means. I cannot drink alcohol or even be around people that smoke due to medical complications (so most college partying is out of the question). I seem to always make friends with girls in class but they never end up becoming more than just friends. I am extremely generous, trusting, loyal, and compassionate to my friends and anyone who is close to me (I am always seen as the sweet/caring guy). I have a lot of friends but I just can't seem to get a girlfriend. What should/can I be doing to get a girlfriend?

  • How do I determine the correct angular velocity in this situation?

    A child of mass 52 kg jumps onto the edge of a merry-go-round of mass 125 kg and radius 1.7 meters that is initially at rest as sketched in the figure below. While in the air (during her jump), the child's linear velocity in the direction tangent to the edge of the merry-go-round is 12 meters/second. What is the angular velocity (in radians/second) of the merry-go-round plus child after the child jumps onto the merry-go-round?

  • How can I become less distracted by music?

    I am a college student that has trouble studying when I listen to music. I am trying to be like most other my age, and listen to music (everything from hip-hop, rap, drum n' bass, techno, country, classical, orchestral, jazz, literally everything). But it seems no matter what type of music I am listening to, it always seems to find a way into my head by taping to the beat or conducting to it (like you would for classical/orchestral music). Unfortunately, both of my parents are music teachers and musicians so it seems their passion for music has made its way into me. I have tried the iDoser series with no success How can I be productive in studying for a wide variety of subjects at college when almost whatever I hear, I unintentionally find a beat, rhythm, or tempo? In summary, whenever I hear some form of music, my mind focuses almost completely on the music.

  • iTouch 8gb (3G) or Zune HD 16GB?

    I am a college student who is pursuing a degree in Mechanical Engineering and want to buy a touch screen media player/app runner. So far Apple has a few apps for engineering but they all cost at least $5 while on the other hand the Zune HD has no specific apps for engineering but they still have hundreds of apps coming every few weeks (from places like www.zuneboards.com and various other sites) and those apps and games for the Zune HD ARE ALL FREE. I absolutely LOVE the OLED's clarity on the Zune and its entire interface but at the same time, Apple's iTouch is very popular and has a wide variety of apps out there already. Also, I want to get on of these two specific models because I am tight on cash. I do indeed understand that the iTouch 8GB (3G) is not nearly as good as the 32gb and 64gb versions of the itouch (3G).
